Slovenia: Skiing competition with ŠD Podljubelj

Our local sport society ŠD Podljubelj organized a skiing competition and again we were part of the measurement crew. That didn't help me much and I finished at 8th place.

Slovenia: Sledding Competition in Savske Jame

Sledding was quite popular in Slovenia but lately it is losing its popularity, mostly due to green winters and also because it became almost professional sport for some people, so to be successful in a competition, you really have to have a good equipment.

This year I helped my friends with time measurements and since I had time, I also joined the competition, that was held in Savske Jame above Jesenice. The track was great, a bit icy for me.

Germany: Fairembedded world in Nürnberg, Day 2

After a short night we went shopping for beers in Landbierparadies. Perfect shop for a man!

We continued to the fair, where we finished what we started yesterday. Every year there is more and more IoT and M2M solutions and that was our conclusion of this year's visit.

IoT - Internet of Things
M2M - Machine to machine

Germany: Fairembedded world in Nürnberg, Day 1

Our company decided to approve our visit of the fair in Nürnberg, so 5 of us squeeze into a car and went there.

The fair is the leading international fair for embedded systems. Matej, Grega, Aleš, Peter and me attended it for 2 day.

Our accommodation was again Pension Florida and from there we continued to the city centre, where we had dinner with our fellow company Borea. Big 1l beers and pork legs were served for us in Bratwurst Röslein and we didn't stop there. Cheers!

Evening in Nürnberg

Slovenia: Hike to Šentanski vrh and Evening Sledding

Nada's wish for today was to hike to Dobrča and it's highest peak Šentanski vrh, 1635 m, and I didn't argue. We hiked there from Brezje pri Tržiču and descended back over Lešanska planina and Bistriška planina.

The steepest part was behind us

View from the top to NE ...

... and NW.

Going back

Lešanska planina, 1450 m

Slovenia: The founder of Brewery Union was born

On this day, 192 years ago, the founder of Brewery Union, Peter Kozler, was born. Peter Kosler or Kozler (16 February 1824 – 16 April 1879) was a Carniolan lawyer, geographer, cartographer, activist, and manufacturer. He was of ethnic German origin, but also identified with Slovene culture and advocated the peaceful coexistence of the Slovene and German cultures in Carniola.

Peter Kozler

He is best known for creating the first map of the Slovene Lands, called Zemljovid Slovenske dežele in pokrajin (Map of Slovene Lands and Provinces). Made already from 1848 until the end of 1852, it was published only in 1861. Despite this, it had a significant impact in the time of the Slovene national awakening.

Slovenia: Sledding Valentine's Day

The weather forecast was good for the morning, so Nada and me went sledding to Stari Ljubelj. The track was awesome and we were superfast on our way down.

Race time - track

Nada and me spent the Valentine's afternoon in front of the TV, watching ski-jumps. Our guy, Peter Prevc was in the air almost as long as I was drinking the beer and he landed at 249 meters. In the end he could land normally and he barely managed to stay on his feet, touching the snow a little, still he won. Congratulations Pero!

2. S. KRAFT      AUT 238,0/231,0 461,6
